Sella’s “Water Route” – Easy Walks in the Costa Blanca

The village of Sella

Sella’s “Water Route” is one of the easier walks here in the Costa Blanca. We already did parts of the walk before and visited its waterfalls in October which are fed by the spring in the “Barranc de L’Arc” after heavy rains.

Today we walked from the “Alcantara” spring via “La Solana” into the village of Sella. After a short break we continued towards the park surrounding the water mill which is among the best restored water mills in the Valencian Community. The water mill can also be visited and its owner Amable – his name means “friendly / kind” – is always keen to tell you its history on a guided tour.
